A good gesture but sometimes not in the best condition. Seems like somebody was trying to get rid of a parcel of land they could not develop.More

We enjoyed this walking path with an engraved timeline of important military, political and historic events that impacted the United States. This park is best for when you have the time to read the timeline.

This memorial would be of interest to anyone who is interested in the history of the United States. It provides a time line along with information about the wars. There is a lot of reading, so take your time and enjoy the walk.

A very peaceful place honoring veterans from WW1&2, Korean & Vietnam wars. As you walk, the plaques tell the stories, while the bricks at your feet name the veterans who served, and in some cases, gave the ultimate sacrifice.
